Need to change stitch density


Hi Debbie,
I found the command for this change in the Features menu called "Balance" and it has a "b" symbol. In the ARtista 185 instruction manual this appears on page 30 so probably around there in your manual too.
Manual says
"Balance - touch symbol to open balance screen, correct forwards and reverse stitches, correct sideways motion stitches.
If you dont' have a manual you might want to download the 185 from the Bernina website, the link is http://bernina-globalsite.webtuning-cdn.ch/webautor-data/887/0308665104_0401_a185_EN.pdf

Hope this helps you to resolve your issue.

you can purchase a new tension dial here
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/tension-brother-vx-800-sewing-machine.aspx for your machine. This may be simpliest solution.

there is also a manual on that site http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-brother-vx810-sewing-machine-instruction-manual.aspx but I can't see images to know if it includes an exploded diagram of the tension dial.

You need to go to www.singerco.com and download a free copy of your manual. You will be able to determine what each dial stands for. Click on customer service, then, you will see instruction manual, now enter 2662 in the box. You will see that you can download, save it, and enlarge each diagram for easy viewing.

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
